RECITALS 

Sections 266A to 266-1, inclusive, of Article 41, of the 
Annotated Code of Maryland (1971 Rep. Vol., 1976 Cum. 
Supp.), as amended, (the "Act") empowers all the counties 
and municipalities of the State of Maryland to issue revenue 
bonds and to loan the proceeds of the sale of such revenue 
bonds to an industrial concern to finance the acquisition 
(as denned in the Act) by such industrial concern of in- 
dustrial buildings (as denned in the Act). The Act declares 
it to be the legislative purpose to relieve conditions of un- 
employment in the State, to encourage the increase of in- 
dustry and a balanced economy in the State, to assist in 
the retention of existing industry in the State through the 
control, reduction or abatement of pollution of the environ- 
ment (where the proceeds of bonds are used for that pur- 
pose), to promote economic development, to protect natural 
resources and in this manner to promote the health, welfare 
and safety of the residents of each of the counties and 
municipalities of the State of Maryland. 

Mayor and City Council of Baltimore (the "City") has 
determined to issue and sell its City of Baltimore, Mary- 
land Industrial Development Revenue Bond (Publication 
Press, Inc. Project), in the principal amount of $900,000 
(the "Bond"), and to loan the proceeds of the Bond to 
Publication Press, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Com- 
pany"), an industrial concern as mentioned in the Act, on 
the terms and conditions set forth in the Loan Agreement 
to be entered into by and between the City and the Company 
(the "Loan Agreement"), as provided by this Ordinance 
(such loan being herein referred to as the "Loan"), in 
order to finance the acquisition (within the meaning of 
the Act) by the Company of certain industrial buildings 
(within the meaning of the Act) (the "Industrial Build- 
ings") in the City of Baltimore, in order to relieve condi- 



14 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

tions of unemployment in the State of Maryland and in the 
City of Baltimore and thus encourage economic develop- 
ment, and to protect the health, welfare and safety of the 
citizens of the State of Maryland and the City of Baltimore. 

The Bond will be sold at private (negotiated) sale to 
Union Trust Company of Maryland, a Maryland banking 
corporation (the "Bank"). 

The Company will execute and deliver to the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond (hereinafter defined) (i) 
a Guaranty Agreement (the "Company Guaranty Agree- 
ment"), pursuant to which the Company will fully and un- 
conditionally guarantee to the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond the payment of the principal of and interest 
on the Bond, and (ii) a Deed of Trust between the Com- 
pany and certain individual trustees designated by the 
Bank (the "Deed of Trust"), conveying to such trustees 
as security for the Loan, the Industrial Buildings and the 
land appurtenant thereto. 

Graphic Arts Finishing Co., Inc., a Maryland corporation 
and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the 
"Guarantor") will execute and deliver to the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond and the City, a Guarantor 
Guaranty Agreement (the "Guarantor Guaranty Agree- 
ment"), pursuant to which the Guarantor will fully and 
unconditionally guarantee to (a) the Bank as agent for 
the holder of the Bond, the payment of the principal of 
and interest on the Bond, and (b) the City and the 
Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond, the (i) payment 
of the principal of and interest on the Loan and all other 
payments to be made by the Company under the Loan 
Agreement, and (ii) the performance by the Company of 
all of its duties and obligations under the Loan Agreement. 

In order to insure that the proceeds of the Bond, and 
the Loan, will be used for the purposes set forth in the 
Act, the Company will enter into a Trust Agreement with 
certain individual trustees designated by the Bank (the 
"Trust Agreement"), pursuant to which the proceeds of 
the Loan will be deposited with such trustees and held, 
invested and disbursed by such trustees as therein provided. 

This Ordinance authorizes and empowers the City to 
enter into and consummate a transaction which the Com- 



ORDINANCES 15 

pany proposed to the City in accordance with Section 266B 
(d) of the Act by a letter of intent dated January 28, 1976, 
which letter of intent was approved by the Board of Esti- 
mates of the City and accepted by the Mayor of the City 
on February 18, 1976, subject to the passage of this Ordi- 
nance. 

NOW, THEREFORE, in accordance with the terms and 
provisions of the Act and the Charter of Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore : 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That acting pursuant to the Act, it is hereby 
found and determined as follows : 

(1) The issuance and sale of the Bond by the City 
pursuant to the Act in order to lend the proceeds thereof 
to the Company for the sole and exclusive purpose of fi- 
nancing the acquisition (within the meaning of the Act) 
of the Industrial Buildings (within the meaning of the 
Act) will facilitate and expedite the acquisition of the 
Industrial Buildings by the Company ; 

(2) The acquisition of the Industrial Buildings by the 
Company and the financing thereof as provided in this 
Ordinance will promote the declared legislative purposes of 
the Act by (a) sustaining jobs and employment, thus re- 
lieving conditions of unemployment in the State of Mary- 
land and in the City of Baltimore; (b) encouraging the 
increase of industry and a balanced economy in the State 
of Maryland and in the City of Baltimore; (c) assisting 
in the retention of existing industry in the State of Mary- 
land and in the City of Baltimore; (d) promoting economic 
development; and (e) promoting the health, welfare and 
safety of the residents of the City of Baltimore and of 
the State of Maryland. 

(3) In addition to authorizing the City itself to acquire 
the Industrial Buildings and either to lease or to sell the 
same to the Company, the Act, as an alternative pro- 
cedure, also authorizes industrial building financing to be 
accomplished in the form of a loan to the Company. The 
loan form of transaction avoids indirect costs and burdens 
on the City by not requiring any direct involvement by 
the City in the acquisition, ownership or administration 



16 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

of the Industrial Buildings, while permitting ample con- 
trols to be imposed on the use of the Bond proceeds to 
insure that the public purposes of the Act and the Bond 
are fully accomplished. It is, therefore, in the best interests 
of the citizens of the City, to finance the acquisition of 
the Industrial Buildings by a loan to the Company. This 
Ordinance contemplates and authorizes a transaction in the 
form of a loan of the proceeds of the Bond by the City 
to the Company, rather than a transaction in the form 
of a lease or sale of the Industrial Buildings. Accordingly, 
this Ordinance, together with the Loan Agreement author- 
ized hereby, contains such provisions as the City deems ap- 
propriate to effect the financing of the acquisition by the 
Company of the Industrial Buildings by the loan form of 
transaction. 

(4) Neither the Bond, nor the interest thereon, will 
constitute (a) a general obligation of the City, (b) a charge 
against, or pledge of the general credit or taxing powers 
of the City, or (c) a debt of the City, all within the 
meaning of Section 7 of Article XI of the Constitution of 
Maryland or any other constitutional, statutory or charter 
provision or limitation, and neither shall ever constitute 
or give rise to any pecuniary liability on the part of the 
City. The principal of and interest on the Bond shall be 
payable from, and secured by, (a) an assignment of (i) 
the revenues realized, and the collateral pledged, under the 
Loan Agreement and (ii) the City's right, title and inter- 
est in and to, and remedies under the Deed of Trust and 
the Guarantor Guaranty Agreement, and (b) the Company 
Guaranty Agreement and the Guarantor Guaranty Agree- 
ment. The principal amount of the Loan and the repay- 
ments to be made by the Company pursuant to the Loan 
Agreement authorized hereby will be paid directly to the 
Bank to be held and disbursed by the Bank as agent for 
the holder of the Bond as provided in this Ordinance. No 
such moneys will be commingled with the City's funds or 
will be subject to the absolute control of the City, but 
only to such limited supervision and checks as are deemed 
necessary or desirable by the City to insure that the Bond 
proceeds are used to accomplish the public purposes of the 
Act and this Ordinance. The transactions authorized hereby 
do not constitute the acquisition of property for public 
use or the purchase of equipment for public use ; the public 



ORDINANCES 17 

purposes expressed in the Act are to be achieved by fa- 
cilitating the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings by the 
Company. 

(5) The City will acquire no interest in the Industrial 
Buildings other than the interest granted under the Deed 
of Trust, the security interest created by the Loan Agree- 
ment and any general interest in the Company's property 
shared by all holders of the Company's obligations which 
rank and are secured equally with the Company's obliga- 
tion pursuant to the Loan Agreement. The security for 
the Bond shall be solely and exclusively (a) the absolute, 
irrevocable and unconditional obligation of the Company 
to make the payments required by the Loan Agreement, 
(b) moneys realized from any and all collateral (including 
the Industrial Buildings conveyed by the Deed of Trust) 
pledged as security for the Loan, (c) the full and uncon- 
ditional guaranty by the Company of the payment of the 
principal of and interest on the Bond pursuant to the 
Company Guaranty Agreement, and (d) the full and un- 
conditional guarantee by the Guarantor of (i) the pay- 
ment of the principal of and interest on the Bond, (ii) the 
payment of the principal of and interest on the Loan and 
all other payments to be made by the Company under the 
Loan Agreement, and (iii) the performance by the Com- 
pany of all of its duties and obligations under the Loan 
Agreement, all pursuant to the Guarantor Guaranty Agree- 
ment. 

(6) None of the receipts and revenues of the City 
from the Loan Agreement shall be set aside as a depreciation 
account (mentioned in the Act), since neither the City 
nor the Bank desire, or are creating, any interest in the 
Industrial Buildings (other than the interest created under 
the Deed of Trust, the security interest created by the 
Loan Agreement and any interest shared by all holders of 
the Company's obligations ranking on a parity with the 
Company's obligation pursuant to the Loan Agreement). 
Such a depreciation account would (i) be inconsistent with 
the transaction authorized hereby and (ii) place an un- 
reasonable burden on the Company so as to adversely affect 
the feasibility of the transaction and thus frustrate the 
legislative purposes of the Act.

This Bond is issued pursuant to the authority of Sections 
266A to 266-1, inclusive, of Article 41 of the Annotated 
Code of Maryland (1971 Rep. Vol., 1976 Cum. Supp.), as 
amended (the "Act"), and pursuant to and under the au- 
thority of Ordinance No of the City approved by the 

Mayor of the City on , 1976 (the "Ordi- 
nance"). Reference is hereby made to the ordinance for the 
provisions, among others, with respect to (a) the nature 
and extent of the security for this Bond, (b) the rights, 
duties and obligations of the City and the Bank (both in 
its individual corporate capacity and as agent for the holder 
of this Bond) , (c) the terms upon which this Bond is issued 
and secured, (d) the modification or amendment of any of 
the foregoing or of the Loan Agreement (hereinafter de- 
fined), and (e) the obligation of the holder hereof to in- 
demnify the Bank under certain circumstances ; and, by the 
acceptance of this Bond, the holder hereof assents to all of 
the provisions of the Ordinance and agrees to be bound 
thereby. 

This Bond is issued for the purpose of financing, in whole 
or in part, the cost of the acquisition (as defined in the Act) 
by Publication Press, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the 



24 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

"Company") of certain industrial buildings (as defined in 
the Act) in the City of Baltimore (the "Industrial Build- 
ings") and paying expenses incidental thereto so as to help 
relieve conditions of unemployment, to encourage the in- 
crease of industry, and to help achieve a balanced economy 
in the State of Maryland and in the City of Baltimore. 

This Bond is a limited obligation of the City, and the 
principal hereof and interest hereon are payable solely from 
(i) the moneys to be derived by the City under a Loan 
Agreement of even date herewith between the City and the 
Company (the "Loan Agreement"), and the collateral 
pledged thereunder, pursuant to which the proceeds of 
the issuance and sale hereof are being loaned by the City to 
the Company for the purpose of providing the aforesaid 
financing, (ii) any and all moneys realized from the sale 
of collateral, including the Industrial Building, pledged as 
security for such loan, (iii) any and all moneys received 
under certain guaranty agreements, and (iv) moneys de- 
rived from all other security referred to in the ordinance. 
Neither this Bond nor the interest payable hereon shall 
ever constitute an indebtedness or a charge against the 
general credit or taxing powers of the City within the 
meaning of any constitutional provision or statutory or 
charter limitation, and neither shall ever constitute or give 
rise to any pecuniary liability of the City. 

Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, payments sufficient for 
the prompt payment when due of the principal of and 
interest on this Bond are to be paid by the Company directly 
to the Bank, to be held by the Bank, as agent for the holder 
of this Bond, in a separate and special fund created by Sec- 
tion 4 of the ordinance, to be used by the Bank, as agent for 
the holder of the Bond, for the payment of the principal of 
and interest on this Bond. 

The City may under certain circumstances prescribed in 
Section 7 of the ordinance be required to pay (but only out 
of amounts made available to the City by the Company or 
others for such purposes) all or part of the principal of this 
Bond (plus accrued and unpaid interest) before maturity 
upon the terms provided in Section 7 of the ordinance. In 
the event of partial prepayment, the holder hereof shall 
surrender this Bond to the Bond Registrar (hereinafter 
referred to), for notation hereon that this Bond, to the 



ORDINANCES 25 

extent of the amount prepaid, has been partially prepaid. 
In the event of a partial prepayment of this Bond, the sums 
applied to the prepayment shall be applied to the prepay- 
ment of the principal installments hereof in the inverse 
order of their payment dates. Reference is hereby made to 
Section 7 of the ordinance for the provisions relating 
to the prepayment of this Bond, and, by the acceptance 
of this Bond, the holder hereof assents to such prepayment 
provisions and agrees to be bound thereby. 

Notice of any such prepayment shall be given at least 
two (2) banking days prior to the prepayment date by mail- 
ing and by telegraphing to the registered owner of this Bond 
a notice fixing such prepayment date, the amount of prin- 
cipal to be prepaid and the interest to be paid through the 
prepayment date. The notice required herein to be given 
may be waived by the registered owner of this Bond. 

All payments hereunder shall be made in immediately 
available funds at the office of Union Trust Company of 
Maryland, Baltimore and St. Paul Streets, Baltimore, Mary- 
land 21202. If any principal or interest payable hereon falls 
due on any day other than a banking day at the Bank, then 
such payment date shall be extended to the next succeeding 
full banking day. 

In the event any installment of principal or payment of 
interest, or both, as hereinabove provided is not paid when 
due and payable, such installment of principal or payment 
of interest, or both, shall bear interest at the rate of 
twelve per centum (12% ) per annum until paid. 

This Bond shall be registered as to both principal and 
interest. The Treasurer of the City shall serve as Bond 
Registrar, and he shall keep at his principal office, for so 
long as this Bond remains outstanding, books for the regis- 
tration and transfer hereof. When used herein, the term 
"holder of this Bond" shall mean the registered owner 
from time to time of this Bond, and the initial holder of 
this Bond shall be the Bank. 

This bond shall be transferable only upon the books main- 
tained by the Bond Registrar by the registered owner hereof 
in person or by his attorney duly authorized in writing, 
upon surrender hereof together with a written instrument 



26 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

of transfer satisfactory to the Bond Registrar duly executed 
by the registered owner or his duly authorized attorney. 
This Bond is a "security" within the meaning of Article 8 
of the Maryland Uniform Commercial Code, and notwith- 
standing the provisions herein contained for registration, is 
and shall remain, negotiable. The laws of the State of Mary- 
land shall govern the construction of this Bond. 

The City, the Bank, as agent for the holder of the Bond, 
and the Bond Registrar may deem and treat the person in 
whose name this Bond shall be registered as the absolute 
owner hereof, whether this Bond shall be overdue or not, 
for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, 
the principal of and interest hereon and for all purposes, 
and all such payments so made to such registered owner or 
upon his order shall be valid and effectual to satisfy and 
discharge the liability upon this Bond to the extent of the 
sum or sums so paid, and neither the City nor the Bank nor 
the Bond Registrar shall be affected by any notice to the con- 
trary. 

Within 60 days after receipt of a written request from 
the holder of this Bond (or within such longer period as 
may be reasonably required for the authorization, issuance 
and preparation of bonds) the City will take action neces- 
sary to cause serial bonds to be duly authorized and issued, 
to the extent permitted by applicable laws, in order that 
this Bond may be exchanged for a series of serial bonds. 
Any serial bonds so authorized and issued shall be substan- 
tially in the same form as this Bond, with only such 
changes in amounts, dates and other details as may be 
necessary. All such serial bonds shall (a) bear interest at 
the same rate, and (b) be ratably and equally secured by, 
and entitled to the benefits of, the ordinance and the security 
for the repayment of the Bond provided for therein. Any 
expenses incurred by the City in authorizing and issuing 
any such serial bonds shall be paid by the Company. 

IT IS HEREBY CERTIFIED, RECITED AND DE- 
CLARED that all conditions, acts and things required by the 
Constitution and laws of the State of Maryland and the 
Charter of Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, to exist, 
to have happened and to have been performed precedent to 
and in the execution and delivery of this Bond exist, have 
happened, and have been performed, and that the issuance 



ORDINANCES 27

City, does not exceed or violate any constitutional or 
statutory debt limitations. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, MAYOR AND CITY COUN- 
CIL OF BALTIMORE, has caused this Bond to be signed 
by its Mayor by his manual signature and has also caused 
its corporate seal to be hereunto affixed and attested by the

the City and the holder from time to time of the Bond; (ii)

Section 5.3 of the Loan Agreement) and any proceeds

City, irrespective of whether such parties shall have notice 
thereof. 

Sec. 5. And be it further ordained, That simultaneously 
with the issuance and sale of the Bond, the City will, pur- 
suant to the terms of the Loan Agreement and the Act, lend 
the proceeds of the issuance and sale thereof to the Company 
to be applied to the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings 
in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.3 of the Loan 
Agreement. 

The proceeds of the Bond shall be advanced to the Com- 
pany as provided in the Loan Agreement, and, in order to 
insure that such proceeds will be used for the purposes set 
forth in the Act, the Company shall deposit such proceeds 
with the Trustees under the Trust Agreement, who will 
hold, invest and disburse such proceeds as therein and in 
Sections 4.3 through 4.6 of the Loan Agreement provided. 

Sec. 6. And be it further ordained, That the City cov- 
enants that it will promptly pay the principal of and interest 
on the Bond, and premium, if any, at the place, on the 
dates and in the manner provided in this ordinance and in 
the Bond according to their true intent and meaning; pro- 
vided that the Bond, together with the interest thereon, 
shall be the limited obligation of the City payable solely 
from the moneys derived from (a) the Loan Agreement and 
the sale of any collateral pledged thereunder and under 
the Deed of Trust, and (b) the Guarantor Guaranty Agree- 
ment and (c) all other security referred to in this ordi- 
nance, and shall be a valid claim of the holder thereof only 
against such moneys, which moneys shall be used for no 
other purpose than to pay the principal of and interest 
on the Bond (except as may be otherwise expressly author- 
ized in this ordinance). Neither the Bond nor the interest 
payable thereon shall ever constitute an indebtedness or a 
charge against the general credit or taxing powers of the 
City within the meaning of any constitutional or charter 
provision or statutory limitation and neither shall ever con- 
stitute or give rise to any pecuniary liability of the City. 

Sec. 7. And be it further ordained, That the Bond shall be 
subject to prepayment by the City (but only from moneys 



ORDINANCES 29 

received by it from the Company or others) prior to its 
expressed maturity as follows: 

(a) The Bond shall be prepaid, on any interest pay- 
ment date, either as a whole at any time or in part from 
time to time, in multiples of $50,000, upon the exercise by 
the Company of its option to prepay the amounts due under 
the Loan Agreement as provided in Section 12.1 of the 
Loan Agreement, at a prepayment price of the principal 
amount to be prepaid, together with unpaid interest thereon 
accrued to the date fixed for prepayment, without payment 
of premium or penalty unless the Bond shall be prepaid, 
either as a whole or in part, on or before December 1, 1977, 
in which event a premium in the amount of 7% of the prin- 
cipal amount to be prepaid shall be charged in addition to 
the prepayment price. 

(b) The Bond shall be prepaid, as a whole but not in 
part, upon the occurrence of an event which under Section 
12.2 of the Loan Agreement obligates the Company to pre- 
pay amounts due under the Loan Agreement. Section 12.2 
of the Loan Agreement provides that the Company shall be 
obligated to prepay amounts due under the Loan Agreement 
in the event that (i) as a result of federal, state or local 
constitutional, legislative, administrative or judicial action 
the Loan Agreement shall have become void, unenforceable, 
or impossible of performance; or (ii) the Company's use 
and occupancy of the Industrial Buildings or any part 
thereof shall have become legally curtailed (as a result of 
condemnation or otherwise). If the Bond is prepaid pur- 
suant to this Section 7(b), the prepayment price shall be 
equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Bond 
together with unpaid interest on the Bond accrued to the 
date fixed for prepayment. 

(c) The Bond shall be prepaid in part in the event that 
any of the proceeds of the Loan remains on deposit with the 
Trustees after completion of the acquisition of the In- 
dustrial Buildings as set forth in Section 4.3 of the Loan 
Agreement and Section 5.3 of the Trust Agreement, and 
any such prepayment may be made at any time and in any 
amount, without premium or penalty, and shall be applied to 
the prepayment of the installments of principal of the Bond 
in the inverse order of their payment dates. 



30 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

(d) The Bond shall be prepaid, as a whole but not in 
part, upon any occurrence under the Loan Agreement, 
which gives the City, the Bank as agent for the holder of 
the Bond or the holder of the Bond the option to accelerate 
the maturity of the amounts payable under the Loan Agree- 
ment, at a prepayment price equal to the outstanding prin- 
cipal amount thereof together with unpaid interest accrued 
to the date of prepayment. 

The City shall prepay the outstanding principal amount 
of the Bond (or a portion thereof in the event of partial 
prepayment), and interest thereon accrued and unpaid to 
the prepayment date and the premium, if any, immediately, 
and only, upon receipt by the City of any sums payable 
by the Company under the Loan Agreement as a result of 
the occurrence of any event set forth in (a), (b), (c) or 
(d) above; and the City hereby covenants to apply all sums 
so received by it for such purpose to the prepayment of the 
Bond. In the event such sums are not sufficient to provide 
for the prepayment of the entire outstanding principal 
amount of the Bond, such sums shall be applied to the 
prepayment of the installments of principal of the Bond in 
the inverse order of the semi-annual installment payment 
dates. 

In the event of a partial prepayment, the holder of the 
Bond shall surrender the Bond to the Bond Registrar 
(hereinafter referred to) for notation thereon that the 
Bond, to the extent of the amount prepaid, has been par- 
tially prepaid. 

Notice of any prepayment shall be given at least two (2) 
banking days prior to the prepayment date by mailing or 
telegraphing to the registered owner of the Bond a notice 
stating the prepayment date, the amount of principal to be 
prepaid and the interest to be paid through the prepayment 
date. The notice may be waived by the registered owner of 
the Bond. 

Sec. 8. And be it further ordained, That payment of the 
Bond and the interest thereon shall be made to the 
registered owner thereof by the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond. All payments of principal, interest and other 
charges required by this ordinance or the Bond shall be 
made at the office of the Bank, Baltimore and St. Paul 



ORDINANCES 31 

Streets, Baltimore, Maryland 21203, in lawful money of the 
United States of America, in immediately available funds. 
Interest on the Bond shall be calculated on the basis of a 
360-day year factor to be applied to actual days elapsed. 
If any principal or interest payment on the Bond falls due

pursuant to the Trust Agreement, to be held, invested and

ment. Unless the prior written consent of the holder of

disbursed only in accordance with the terms, conditions, 
provisions and procedures set forth in the Trust Agreement. 

The Company covenants that the proceeds of the Bond

Code, and shall be used for the acquisition, construction 
or installation of land or property of a character subject 
to the allowance for depreciation as prescribed in Section

posit after the Completion Date and after payment of all

quired by the Company for payment of costs of the Indus- 
trial Buildings not then due and payable, and any moneys 
held by the Trustees at the time of default under Section 8

to the City to be applied to the prepayment, without pre- 
mium or penalty, of the amounts due hereunder, and such 



ORDINANCES 47 

amounts shall be applied by the City to the immediate 
prepayment, without premium or penalty, of the install- 
ments of principal of the Bond (in the inverse order of 
their payment dates) in accordance with the terms and

Completion Date shall be evidenced to the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond, the Trustees and the City by 
a certificate signed by the Authorized Company Represent- 
ative and the person or persons responsible for the acquisi- 
tion of the Industrial Buildings stating in substance that 
(1) the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings has been 
completed to the satisfaction of the Company in accord- 
ance with the description thereof set forth in Exhibit A 
hereto, and all labor, services, materials and supplies used 
in such acquisition have been paid for, (2) all other im- 
provements, and necessary and useful machinery and equip- 
ment described in Exhibit A hereto, necessary in connec- 
tion with the Industrial Buildings have been acquired and 
constructed substantially in accordance with the descrip- 
tion thereof set forth in Exhibit A hereto, and all costs 
and expenses incurred in connection therewith have been 
paid, (3) the Industrial Buildings are suitable and sufficient 
for their intended purposes, and (4) substantially all of 
the proceeds from the Bond theretofore advanced by the 
Trustees have been used for purposes allowable under Sec- 
tion 103(c)(2) of the Code. Such certificate shall have 
attached thereto final waivers of liens of the general con- 
tractor and all subcontractors and suppliers of materials, 
services and equipment in connection with the acquisition 
of the Industrial Buildings. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, such certificate shall 
state that it is given without prejudice to any rights against 
third parties which exist at the date of such certificate or 
which may subsequently come into being. It shall be the 
duty of the Company to cause such certificate to be furn- 
ished as soon as the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings

Section 4.5. Company Required to Pay Costs in the 
Event Bond Proceeds Insufficient. In the event the proceeds 
of the Bond available for payment of the costs of the 
acquisition of the Industrial Buildings shall not be sufficient 
to pay the costs thereof in full (including all items of cost 
set forth in Section 4.3 hereof), the Company agrees to 
complete the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings and 
pay all that portion of the costs of the acquisition of the 
Industrial Buildings (including all items of cost set forth 
in Section 4.3 hereof) as may be in excess of the proceeds 
of the Bond available therefor. The City does not make 
any warranty, either express or implied, that the proceeds 
of the Bond which, under the provisions of this Agreement, 
will be available for payment of the costs of the acquisition 
of the Industrial Buildings will be sufficient to pay all the 
costs which will be incurred in that connection (including 
all items of cost set forth in Section 4.3 hereof). The 
Company agrees that if after exhaustion of the proceeds 
of the Bond the Company shall pay any portion of the 
costs of the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings pursuant 
to the provisions of this Section, it shall not be entitled 
to any reimbursement therefor from the City, or from the 
Bank, or from the Bank as agent for the holder of the 
Bond, or from the holder of the Bond, or from the Trustees, 
nor shall it be entitled to any diminution of the amounts 
payable hereunder. 

Section 4.6. Investment of Money. Any moneys held by 
the Trustees under the Trust Agreement and not required 
for immediate disbursements and withdrawal shall, at the 
written request of the Authorized Company Representative, 
be invested or reinvested to the extent permitted by law, 
in the following: (i) general obligations, of, or obligations 
unconditionally guaranteed as to principal and interest by, 
the United States of America; (ii) bonds, debentures, 
participation certificates or notes issued by any agency or 
corporation which is or may hereafter be created by Act 
of the Congress of the United States as an agency or 
instrumentality thereof; (iii) Public Housing Bonds, 
Temporary Notes or Preliminary Loan Notes, fully secured 
by contracts with the United States; (iv) certificates of 
deposit issued by the Bank, or any other bank, trust com- 
pany or national banking association, organized under the 



ORDINANCES 49 

laws of the United States or any state thereof, which has 
a combined capital of at least $40,000,000, in any amount; 
or (v) any other investment which the Trustees may legally 
make under Federal and Maryland law. Such investments 
shall be made in the discretion of the Trustees; provided, 
however, that the Company may by written direction from 
the Authorized Company Representative to the Trustees 
direct the investments. All such investments shall have 
maturities consonant with the need for funds as estimated 
by such Authorized Company Representative. The Com- 
pany covenants that it will not direct or permit invest- 
ments which would cause the Bond to be an "arbitrage 
bond" within the meaning of Section 103(d)(2) of the 
Code. On each interest payment date, as provided in Section 
5.3 hereof, any profit realized from investments made here- 
under shall be paid over by the Trustees to the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond (as assignee of the City) 
and shall be applied by the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond to the interest on the Loan due and payable 
on such date. To the extent that any profits are so paid 
over and applied, the payment of interest for which the 
Company is responsible on such date shall be reduced accord- 
ingly. Excess profits, over and above the interest due and 
payable on such date shall remain on deposit (and be re- 
invested by the Trustees to the extent practicable) until 
the next interest payment date, when it will be paid over 
and applied as aforesaid. Upon completion of the acquisi- 
tion of the Industrial Buildings, all moneys held by the 
Trustees shall be applied as set forth in the third literary 
paragraph of Section 4.3 of this Agreement.

Ownership and Possession of Industrial Buildings; 
Repayment Provisions ; 
Obligations of Company Unconditional 

Section 5.1. Effective Date of This Agreement; Dura- 
tion of Loan Term. This Agreement shall become effective 
upon its delivery, and shall expire on such date as the 
Bond has been fully paid and retired and all other pay- 
ments required hereunder have been made; provided how- 



50 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

ever, that the expiration of this Agreement shall not 
affect the Company's obligation to pay to any holder of 
the Bond an additional amount after the Bond has been 
fully paid and retired in the event that any holder of the 
Bond in a tax return or as a result of a deficiency assess- 
ment or otherwise, incurs a tax liability as more fully set 
out in Section 5.3 hereof. 

Section 5.2. Oivnership and Possession of the Industrial 
Buildings. The City agrees that the Industrial Buildings 
shall be the sole property of the Company and that the 
Company shall enjoy the sole and exclusive ownership and 
possession of the Industrial Buildings (subject to the right 
of the City to enter thereon for inspection and other pur- 
poses pursuant to the provisions of Section 9.2 hereof). 
The City covenants and agrees that it will not take any 
action, other than pursuant to Article XI of this Loan 
Agreement and its general police powers, to prevent the 
Company from having quiet and peaceable enjoyment of 
the Industrial Buildings. 

Section 5.3. Amounts Payable. The Company promises 
to repay the Loan with interest at the rate of 7% per 
annum on the unpaid principal of the Loan ; provided, how- 
ever, that during any period in which the interest payable 
on the Bond is includible in the gross income (as denned 
in Section 61 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as 
amended) of the holder of the Bond, the rate of interest 
payable on the Loan shall be at the rate of 10%% per 
annum on the unpaid principal amount of the Loan. Interest 
shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year factor 
applied to the actual days elapsed. 

The principal of and interest on the Loan shall be payable 
in lawful money of the United States of America at the time 
of payment as follows : 

(a) interest on the outstanding principal balance shall 
be due and payable semi-annually on the first days of June 
and December in each year commencing on June 1, 1977 and 
continuing to and including December 1, 1986, or until the 
principal amount shall be paid ; 



ORDINANCES 51 

(b) the principal sum shall be paid in equal consecutive 
semi-annual installments of $24,000 each on the first day 
of June and December in each year commencing on June 1, 
1977, continuing to and including December 1, 1979, and 
in equal consecutive semi-annual installments of $54,000 each 
on the first days of June and December in each year com- 
mencing June 1, 1980, and continuing to and including 
December 1, 1986 ; 

(c) the Loan will mature, and the entire unpaid balance 
of principal thereof and accrued and unpaid interest thereon 
shall be due and payable on December 1, 1986 ; and 

(d) all payments received shall be applied first to 
interest and the balance to principal. 

In any event, each and every payment to be made under 
this Section shall be sufficient to pay the installments of the 
principal of and payments of interest on the Bond when 
due (whether at maturity, by redemption, by acceleration 
or otherwise). 

The Company agrees to pay to (and within 30 days after 
the request of) the City, the Bank, and the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond, until the principal of and 
interest on the Bond shall have been paid in full or adequate 
provision therefor shall have been made in accordance 
with the provisions of the ordinance, (i) the ordinary and 
reasonable fees, charges and expenses of the City, the Bank, 
and the Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond incurred 
in connection with the transactions contemplated by this 
Loan Agreement as and when the same become due, and (ii) 
the reasonable fees, charges and expenses incurred by the 
City under the ordinance as and when the same become 
due, including, but not limited to, any expenses incurred 
by the City in authorizing and issuing serial bonds pur- 
suant to Section 9 of the ordinance. 

In the event that interest payable on the Bond is deter- 
mined to be includible in the gross income (as defined in 
Section 61 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as 
amended) of the holder of the Bond so as to cause the rate 
of interest on the Bond to be increased to lOi/2% P er annum, 
the Company agrees to pay directly to the holder of the 
Bond an additional amount of money, which when added to 



52 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

the interest paid on the Bond from the date the interest 
became so includible in the gross income of the holder would 
cause the total amount of interest on the Bond from such 
date to the date upon which the rate of interest on the 
Bond is so increased, to have been paid at a rate equal 
to 10 1 / 4% per annum, and such amount shall be considered 
additional interest on the Bond. In the event that after the 
Bond has been fully paid and retired, any holder of the Bond, 
in a tax return or as a result of a deficiency or otherwise, 
incurs a tax liability under circumstances that, were the 
Bond then outstanding, would cause the rate of interest pay- 
able on the Bond to be increased to 10 V£% per annum, the 
Company agrees to pay directly to that holder of the Bond 
an additional amount of money, which when added to the 
interest paid on the Bond from the date the interest be- 
came so includible in the gross income of that holder, 
would cause the total amount of interest on the Bond 
from such date to the date upon which such holder ceased 
to be a holder of the Bond to have been paid at a rate 
equal to 1014% per annum. In the event that after the Bond 
has been transferred in accordance with Section 9 of the 
ordinance but prior to the date on which the Bond has been 
fully paid and retired, any previous holder of the Bond, in 
a tax return or as a result of a deficiency or otherwise, 
incurs a tax liability as a result of the interest payable on 
the Bond being includible in the gross income (as defined in 
Section 61 of the Code) of such previous holder of the Bond, 
the Company agrees to pay directly to that previous holder 
of the Bond an additional amount of money, which when 
added to the interest paid on the Bond from the date the 
interest on the Bond became so includible in the gross income 
of that holder of the Bond, would cause the total amount 
of interest on the Bond from such date to the date upon 
which the interest on the Bond was no longer includible in 
the gross income of that holder to have been paid at a rate 
equal to 10*4% per annum. All payments required to be 
made by the Company under this paragraph shall be 
considered additional interest on the Bond. 

In the event the Company should fail to make any of the 
payments required in this Section, the item or installment 
so in default shall continue as an obligation of the Company 
until the amount in default shall have been fully paid, and 



ORDINANCES 53 

the Company agrees to pay the said item or installment in 
default with interest thereon at the rate of 12% per annum 
until paid. 

Section 5.4. Place of Payments. The payments provided 
for in the second literary paragraph of Section 5.3 hereof 
shall be made in immediately available funds directly to the 
Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond, at its offices at 
Baltimore and St. Paul Streets, Baltimore, Maryland 21203. 
The payments to be made under the third literary paragraph 
of Section 5.3 hereof shall be paid directly to the Bank, the 
Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond or directly to or 
the City as the case may require. 

Section 5.5. Obligations of Company Hereunder Un- 
conditional. The obligation of the Company to make the 
payments required in Section 5.3 hereof and to perform 
and observe the other agreements on its part contained 
herein shall be absolute and unconditional, irrespective of 
any defense or any rights of set-off, recoupment or counter- 
claim it might otherwise have against the City, the Bank, 
the Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond, or the holder 
of the Bond, and the Company shall pay absolutely net 
during the term of this Agreement the payments to be 
made on account of the Loan as prescribed in Section 5.3 
and all other payments required hereunder, free of any 
deductions and without abatement, diminution or set-off 
other than those herein expressly provided; and until 
such time as the principal of and interest on the Bond shall 
have been fully paid, the Company: (i) will not suspend 
or discontinue any payments provided for in Section 5.3 
hereof; (ii) will perform and observe all of its other 
agreements contained in this Agreement; and (iii) except 
as provided in Article XII hereof, will not terminate this 
Agreement for any cause, including, without limiting the 
generality of the foregoing, failure of the Company to 
complete the acquisition of the Industrial Buildings, the 
occurrence of any acts or circumstances that may consti- 
tute failure of consideration, destruction of or damage to 
the Industrial Buildings, commercial frustration of pur- 
pose, any change in the tax laws of the United States of 
America or of Maryland or any political subdivision or 
either of these, or any failure of the City to perform and 



54 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

observe any agreement, whether express or implied, or 
any duty, liability or obligation arising out of or con- 
nected with this Agreement, except to the extent permitted 
by this Agreement.

or implied, as to the condition of Industrial Buildings or 
any part thereof, or that the Industrial Buildings will be 
suitable (including, without limitation, zoning and avail- 
ability of utilities) for the Company's purposes or needs. 

Section 9.2. Right of Access to the Industrial Buildings. 
The Company agrees that the City, the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond, the holder of the Bond and 
their duly authorized agents shall have the right at all 
reasonable times to enter upon the Industrial Buildings 



62 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

and the land appurtenant thereto to examine and inspect 
the Industrial Buildings and to enforce any remedies in 
the event of a default under this Agreement. 

Section 9.3. City and Company Representatives. The 
Company and the City, respectively, shall designate, in the 
manner prescribed in Article I hereof, the Authorized Com- 
pany Representative and the Authorized City Representa- 
tive. In the event that any person so designated and his 
alternate or alternates, if any, should become unavailable 
or unable to take any action or make any certificate pro- 
vided for or required in this Agreement, a successor shall 
be appointed in the same manner. Whenever under the 
provisions of this Agreement the approval of the City or 
the Company is required, or the City or the Company is 
required to take some action at the request of the other, 
such approval or such request shall be given for the City 
by the Authorized City Representative, and for the Com- 
pany by the Authorized Company Representative ; and the 
other party hereto, the Bank as agent for the holder of the 
Bond and the holder of the Bond are authorized to rely 
upon any such approval or request, and neither party 
hereto shall have any complaint against the other nor 
against the Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond or 
the holder of the Bond as a result of any such reliance. 

Section 9.4. Further Assurances and Collective Instru- 
ments. The City and the Company agree that they will, 
from time to time, execute, acknowledge and deliver or 
cause to be executed, acknowledged and delivered, such 
supplements hereto and such further instruments as may 
reasonably be required for carrying out the intention of 
the parties to, or facilitating the performance of, this 
Agreement. 

Section 9.5. Covenants with Respect to Use of Bond 
Proceeds. The City is issuing the Bond with the intention 
that the interest on the Bond be and remain free from 
federal income taxation and is covenanting with the holder 
of the Bond that it (i) will make no use of the proceeds 
of the Bond which, if such use had been reasonably ex- 
pected on its date of issuance, would have caused the Bond 
to be an "arbitrage bond" within the meaning of Section 



ORDINANCES G3 

103(d) of the Code as in effect at the time of such issu- 
ance, and (ii) will comply to the extent applicable with 
the requirements of Section 103(d) of the Code. To that 
end the Company covenants with the City for the benefit 
of the holder of the Bond that it (i) will make no use of 
the proceeds of the Bond which, if such use had been 
reasonably expected on its date of issuance, would have 
caused the Bond to be an "arbitrage bond" within the 
meaning of Section 103(d) of the Code as in effect at the 
time of such issuance, and (ii) will comply to the extent 
applicable with the requirements of Section 103(d) of 
the Code. The Company will (a) take no action, (b) fail 
to take any action, or (c) make any use of the Industrial 
Buildings or the proceeds of the Bond, which would cause 
the interest on the Bond to be or become subject to federal 
income taxes in the hands of the holder of the Bond. 

Section 9.6. Modification of the Industrial Buildings by 
Company. Subject to the representations and warranties 
contained in Section 3.2 hereof^ the agreements contained 
in Section 4.1 hereof, and the covenants set forth in Sec- 
tion 9.5 above, and upon receipt of the prior written con- 
sent of the holder of the Bond, such consent not to be 
unreasonably withheld, the Company may, from time to 
time, and at its own expense, install additional property 
or otherwise improve, alter, or replace the Industrial Build- 
ings with property of equal or greater value. 

Section 9.7. Restriction on Transfer and Encumbrance 
of Industrial Buildings by Company. The Company agrees 
that it will not, during the Loan Term, sell, assign, lease, 
transfer, convey or otherwise dispose of the Industrial 
Buildings (including the land appurtenant thereto) or any 
portion thereof nor create or suffer to exist any lien or 
encumbrance upon the Industrial Buildings during the 
Loan Term, without the prior written consent of the holder 
of the Bond. 

Section 9.8. No Pecuniary Liability. The Act prescribes, 
and the parties intend that by reason of making this 
Agreement, by reason of the issuance of the Bond, by 
reason of the performance of any act required of it by 
this Agreement, or by reason of the performance of any 



64 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

act requested of it by the Company, no indebtedness or 
charge against the general credit or taxing powers of the 
City within the meaning of any constitutional or charter 
provision or statutory limitation shall occur or shall ever 
constitute or give rise to any pecuniary liability of the 
City. Nevertheless, if the City shall incur any such pecuniary 
liability, then in such event the Company shall indemnify 
and hold the City harmless therefrom. 

Section 9.9. No Liability to Third Parties. Throughout 
the Loan Term, no person or entity contracting with the 
Company with respect to the Industrial Buildings, shall be 
reimbursed by the City under any circumstances whatso- 
ever. The City's issuance of the Bond and loan of the 
proceeds thereof to the Company shall in no way be con- 
strued as obligating the City in any way to any person 
or entity for the payment of any expense incurred with 
respect to the Industrial Buildings. 

ARTICLE X. 

Assignment and Prepayment 

Section 10.1. No Assignment by Company. This Agree- 
ment may not be assigned by the Company without the

taneously with the delivery of this Agreement, by execu-

and the Guarantor Guaranty Agreement to the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond as security for the pay- 
ment of the principal of and interest on the Bond and all

City of any obligation hereunder, or any other matter or 
event whatsoever, including without limitation, the bank- 
ruptcy, insolvency, liquidation or nonexistence of the City, 
which might otherwise relieve the Company from the 
obligation to pay such amount, and that the same shall be 
paid at the respective times specified herein for the pay- 
ment thereof, and the receipt by the Bank as agent for the 
holder of the Bond of such payments shall discharge the 
obligations of the Company to the City hereunder to the 
extent thereof. The Company agrees that no such payment 
shall be subject to any right of setoff, counterclaim or any 
other defense which the Company may or might now or 
hereafter have against the City, the Bank as agent for 
the holder of the Bond, or the holder of the Bond, and 
that all such payments shall be final, and the Company 
shall not seek to recover from the Bank as agent for the 
holder of the Bond for any reason whatsoever, any moneys 
paid by the Company to the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond by virtue of this Agreement or the Assign- 
ment. The Assignment shall not impose on the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond any of the duties, liabil- 
ities, or obligations of the City hereunder, but the Bank 
as agent for the holder of the Bond shall acquire thereby 
all rights of the City hereunder to collect and receive all 
sums payable hereunder, or amounts equal thereto, as are 
necessary to pay the Loan in full and to constitute the 
Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond the beneficiary 
of the obligations of the Company herein contained. 

Section 10.3. Prepayment of the Bond. Upon the pay- 
ment of any amounts due under Section 5.3 hereof or else- 
where in this Agreement and if adequate provision has been 
made to assure that money sufficient to effect prepayment 
will be on deposit with the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond on the date fixed for prepayment (including 
any premium required under the Prepayment Provisions), 
the City or the assignee under the Assignment, at the 
request at any time of the Company, and if the same is 
then subject to prepayment, shall forthwith take all steps 
that may be necessary under the Prepayment Provisions 
to effect prepayment of all or part of the then outstanding 
principal and unpaid accrued interest on the Bond, on

may be made under the Prepayment Provisions.

Paid. Except as provided in the fourth literary paragraph 
of Section 5.3 hereof, upon payment in full of the Bond 
and all fees and charges of the Bank as agent for the 
holder of the Bond and the City, all references in this 
Agreement to the Bond shall be ineffective and the holder 
of the Bond shall thereafter have no rights hereunder, 
saving and excepting those that shall have theretofore 
vested.

EXHIBIT A 

to 
Loan Agreement dated as of December 1, 1976 
by and between Mayor and City Council of Baltimore 
and Publication Press, Inc. 

DESCRIPTION OF INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS 

The Industrial Buildings to be purchased, remodeled, re- 
habilitated, extended, permanently improved, and equipped 
with the proceeds of the Bond are located on a tract of land 
in Baltimore City known as 200-212 North Bentalou Street, 
which tract of land is more particularly described in the 
Deed of Trust dated as of December 1, 1976 by the Com- 
pany and Trustees to be designated by the Bank, such Deed 
of Trust to be recorded among the Land Records of Balti- 
more City. The building known as 200 North Bentalou 
Street is now used and will be used for the manufacturing 
of paperback and hard back covered books and, after the 
purchase and installation of equipment hereinafter men- 
tioned, will contain complete equipment necessary for such 
manufacturing process, except for binding equipment 
hereinafter mentioned. The Company will erect a building 
at 212 North Bentalou Street, to be an extension of the 
building at 200 North Bentalou Street, to meet expansion 
needs and to contain offices related to the manufacturing 
process. 

The following equipment is presently located in the in- 
dustrial building at 200 North Bentalou Street and will be 
rehabilitated or improved with the proceeds of the Bond: 
(1) One Clark-Aiken Sheeter, Serial No. D-SS-116; and (2) 
One Hantscho Webb Press, Serial No. 405. 

The following equipment will be purchased with a por- 
tion of the proceeds of the Bond and will be installed in the 



ORDINANCES 77 

above mentioned building by the Company: (1) One Clark- 
Aiken Sheeter, Serial No. 3435; and (2) One Royal-Zenith 
Planeta 55" Perfecting Press, Serial No. 111608. 

The Company will also purchase a McCain Model 1800 
5-Knife Saddlestitcher such Saddlestitcher to be leased to 
Graphic Arts Finishing Co., Inc., the wholly-owned sub- 
sidiary of the Company, and to be located at 3801 South- 
western Boulevard, in Baltimore City, Maryland, the pre- 
mises leased by such subsidiary. The binding process of 
Graphic Arts Finishing Co., Inc. completes the manufactur- 
ing process in which the Company is engaged in the Indust- 
rial Buildings and this Saddlestitcher is essential to the mo- 
dernization of the Company's manufacturing process, for 
which it has requested the industrial revenue bond financing. 
Since the binding operation is located on the Graphic Arts 
Finishing Co., Inc. premises, it is necessary for the Saddle- 
stitcher to be at the same location in order to be integrated 
with necessary peripheral binding equipment. The Com- 
pany will also purchase with the proceeds of the Bond mis- 
cellaneous items of equipment necessary for its manufac- 
turing operation. 

Sec. 12. And be it further ordained, That the Assign- 
ment by which the City assigns to the Bank as agent for the 
holder of the Bond all of its right, title and interest in and 
to, and remedies under the Loan Agreement and moneys 
due and to become due the City thereunder, and all col- 
lateral pledged thereunder, and all of its right, title and 
interest in and to and remedies under, the Deed of Trust 
and the Guarantor Guaranty Agreement, shall be substan- 
tially in the following form, and the form, with such 
changes therein as the Mayor of the City shall approve, 
such approval to be conclusively evidenced by the execution 
and delivery of the Assignment by the Mayor of the City, 
is hereby adopted by the City as and for the form and 
tenor of the obligation to be performed, and the Assign- 
ment is hereby made binding upon the City.

provided, however, if such default (other than a default 
under Sections 2.1 or 2.7(b) hereof) be such that it can-

corrective action to cure such default. 

Section 2.8. This Guaranty Agreement is entered into 
by the Company for the benefit of the Bank as agent for the

thereof when the same shall be due and payable, it shall 
be lawful for Beneficiary, without notice or demand to 
Grantor, to pay the same or any of them ; that the moneys 
paid by Beneficiary in discharge of taxes, assessments,

14. That in the event of the passage after the date of 
this Deed of Trust of any law of the State of Maryland, 
deducting from the value of real property for the purposes 
of taxation any lien thereon or changing in any way the 
laws for the taxation of deeds of trust or debts secured 
by deeds of trust for State or local purposes or the manner

any indebtedness hereby secured, or for any title examina- 
tion or title insurance policy relating to the title to the 
premises, all such sums shall on notice and demand be 
paid by Grantor, together with the interest thereon at the 
current interest rate provided in the Loan Agreement, and 
shall be a lien on the premises subordinate to the lien of 
this Deed of Trust, and shall be deemed to be secured by 
this Deed of Trust and evidenced by the Loan Agreement, 
and that in any action or proceeding to foreclose this Deed 
of Trust or to recover or collect the debt secured hereby,

covenants and agreements under leases which it has exe- 
cuted or may execute in connection with the premises ; and 
failure by Grantor to so carry out its covenants and 
agreements under any or all leases shall, at the option of 
Beneficiary, constitute a default under this Deed of Trust; 
Beneficiary shall have the right to approve all such leases 
of the premises which Grantor may execute after the date 
of this Deed of Trust; and at any time within 30 days 
after notice and demand by Beneficiary, Grantor will de-

the name of Grantor, and to receive the rents, issues and 
profits of the premises and to apply the same, after the 
payment of all necessary charges and expenses, on account 
of the amount hereby secured; that said rents and profits

time to enforce any legal or equitable remedy against 
Grantor and to sue Grantor for any sums (whether inter- 
est, damages for failure to pay principal or any install- 
ment thereof, taxes, installments of principal or any other 
sums required to be paid under the terms of this Deed of 
Trust, as the same become due) without regard to 
whether or not the principal sum secured or any other 
sums evidenced by the Loan Agreement and secured by this 
Deed of Trust shall be due and without prejudice to the 
right of Beneficiary thereafter to enforce any appropriate 
remedy against Grantor including an action of foreclosure, 
or any other action, for a default or defaults by Grantor 
existing at the time such earlier action was commenced. 

22. That any payment made in accordance with the 
terms of this Deed of Trust, or by any subsequent owner

terms and provisions hereof, and Beneficiary, notwith- 
standing any such failure, shall have the right thereafter 
to insist upon the strict performance of any and all of the 
terms and provisions of this Deed of Trust, that neither 
Grantor nor any other person now or hereafter obligated 
for the payment of the whole or any part of the sums now 
or hereafter secured by this Deed of Trust shall be relieved 
of such obligation by reason of the failure of Beneficiary 
to comply with any request of Grantor, or the failure of 
any other person so obligated to take action to foreclose 
this Deed of Trust or otherwise enforce any of the provi- 
sions of this Deed of Trust or of any obligations secured 
by this Deed of Trust, or by reason of any agreement or 
stipulation between any subsequent owner or owners of 
the premises and Beneficiary extending the time of pay- 
ment or modifying the terms of the Loan Agreement or 
this Deed of Trust with or without first having obtained

of any such agreement of extension or modification unless 
expressly released and discharged in writing by Benefi- 
ciary; that, regardless of consideration, and without the 
necessity for any notice to or consent by the holder of any 
subordinate lien of the premises, Beneficiary may release 
the obligation of anyone at any time liable for any of the 
indebtedness secured by this Deed of Trust or any part 
of the security held for the indebtedness and may extend 
the time of payment or otherwise modify the terms of the 
Loan Agreement or this Deed of Trust without, as to the 
security or the remainder thereof, in anywise impairing or 
affecting the lien of this Deed of Trust or the priority of 
such lien, as security for the payment of the indebtedness 
as it may be so extended or modified, over any subordinate 
lien; that the holder of any subordinate lien shall have no 
right to terminate any lease affecting the premises whether 
or not such lease be subordinate to this Deed of Trust;

ever such maturity may be brought about (including 
without limitation the unrevoked election of Beneficiary 
pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 5 hereof to accel- 
erate the maturity of the indebtedness), default should be 
made in the payment of the indebtedness, Trustees shall 
thereupon or at any time thereafter at the request of 
Beneficiary declare all the debts and obligations secured 
hereby to be at once due and payable and take possession 
of the premises or any portion thereof requested by Bene- 
ficiary to be sold, and shall make sale of the premises, as 
an entirety or in parcels by one sale or by several sales as 
may be deemed by Trustees to be appropriate and without 
regard to any right of Grantor or any other person to the 
marshalling of assets, at public auction, at such time or 
times, at such place or places, and upon such terms and 
conditions and after such previous public notice as Trus- 
tees shall deem appropriate; that (the terms of sale being 
complied with) Trustees shall convey to and at the cost 
of the purchaser the interest of the Grantor in the prem- 
ises so sold, free and discharged of and from all estate, 
right, title or interest of Grantor, at law or in equity, such 
purchaser being hereby discharged from all liability to see 
to the application of the purchase money; that upon any 
sale of the interest of Grantor in the premises under this 
Deed of Trust whether under the assent to a decree, the 
power of sale, or by equitable foreclosure, the proceeds of 
sale shall be applied (after paying all expenses of sale, 
including reasonable counsel fees and a commission to the 
party making the sale equal to the commission allowed 
trustees for making sales of property under decrees of the 
equity court having jurisdiction, and also all taxes and 
assessments and prior liens thereon due which Trustees or 
Beneficiary deem it advisable or expedient to pay and all 
sums advanced as herein provided for with interest there- 
on) to the payment of the aggregate indebtedness then 
secured hereby and interest thereon to the date of pay- 
ment, paying over the surplus, if any, to Grantor or any 
person entitled thereto upon the surrender and delivery 
to the purchaser of possession of the premises as aforesaid 
sold and conveyed less the expense, if any, of obtaining 



ORDINANCES 115 

possession thereof; and that immediately upon the first in- 
sertion of any advertisement or notice of sale, there shall 
be and become due and owing by Grantor all expenses 
incident to any foreclosure proceedings under this Deed of 
Trust and a commission on the total amount of the in- 
debtedness, principal and interest, equal to one-half the 
percentage allowed as commission to trustees making sales 
under orders or decrees of the equity court having juris- 
diction, and no party shall be required to receive only the 
aggregate indebtedness then secured hereby with interest 
thereon to the date of payment unless the same be accom- 
panied by a tender of the said expenses, costs and com- 
mission. 

25. That if at any time the United States of America 
shall require internal revenue stamps to be affixed to the 
Loan Agreement or this Deed of Trust, Grantor will pay 
for the same with any interest or penalties imposed in 
connection therewith. 

26. That the rights, powers, privileges and discretions 
arising under the clauses and covenants contained in this 
Deed of Trust shall be separate, distinct and cumulative 
and none of them shall exclude the others; that no act of 
Beneficiary shall be construed as an election to proceed 
under any one provision herein to the exclusion of any 
other provisions, anything herein or otherwise to the con- 
trary notwithstanding. 

27. That Beneficiary shall have, and is hereby granted 
by Grantor with warranty of further assurances, the irre- 
vocable power to appoint a substitute Trustee or Trustees 
hereunder (including, in case of death of a Trustee or 
Trustees or their refusal to act or their non-acceptance of 
the trust, absence or any other reason to appoint a new or 
replacement or substitute trustee or trustees), to be exer- 
cised at any time hereafter without notice and without 
specifying any reason therefor, by filing for record in the 
office where this instrument is recorded a Deed of Appoint- 
ment, and said power of appointment of a successor 
trustee or trustees may be exercised as often and whenever 
Beneficiary deems it advisable, and the exercise of said 
power of appointment, no matter how often, shall not be 
an exhaustion thereof; that upon the recordation of such 



116 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

Deed or Deeds of Appointment, the trustee or trustees so 
appointed shall thereupon, without any further act or deed 
of conveyance, become fully vested with indentically the 
same title and estate in and to the premises and with all 
the rights, powers, trusts and duties of their, his or its 
predecessor in the trust hereunder with like effect as if 
originally named as Trustee or as one of the Trustees 
hereunder; that whenever in this Deed of Trust reference 
is made to Trustees, it shall be construed to mean the 
trustee or trustees for the time being, whether original or 
successors or successor in trust; and that all title, estate, 
rights, powers, trusts and duties hereunder given or apper- 
taining to or devolving upon Trustees shall be in each of 
the Trustees so that any action hereunder or purporting 
to be hereunder of any one of the original or any successor 
Trustees shall for all purposes be considered to be, and 
as effective as, the action of all Trustees. 

28. That if Grantor has demised, or shall hereafter de- 
mise, the premises or any part thereof by leases subordi- 
nate or junior (either by the date thereof or by the express 
terms thereof) to the lien hereof, any such lease shall be 
subject to the condition that in the event of any fore- 
closure sale or sales hereunder, by virtue of judicial pro- 
ceedings or otherwise, such lease shall, at the option of 
Beneficiary, continue in full force and effect and the tenant 
thereunder will, upon request, attorn to and acknowledge 
the foreclosure purchaser or purchasers at such sale as 
landlords thereunder.

the context clearly indicates a contrary intent or unless 
otherwise specifically provided herein, the words "Deed of

TRUST COMPANY OF MARYLAND, a Maryland bank- 
ing corporation (the "Bank"), and MAYOR AND CITY 
COUNCIL OF BALTIMORE, a body politic and corpo- 
rate and a political subdivision of the State of Maryland 
(the "City"). 

WITNESSETH: 

Whereas, the City intends to issue its City of Baltimore, 
Maryland Industrial Development Revenue Bond (Publica- 
tion Press, Inc. Project), in the principal amount of $900,- 
000 (the "Bond") ; and 

Whereas, the Bond is to be issued under and pursuant 

to Ordinance No , approved by the Mayor of the City

Whereas, the proceeds derived from the issuance of 
the Bond are to be loaned by the City to Publication Press, 
Inc., a Delaware corporation of which the Guarantor is 
a wholly-owned subsidiary (the "Company"), pursuant to 
the terms of a Loan Agreement of even date herewith be- 
tween the City and the Company (the "Loan Agreement") 
(such loan being herein referred to as the "Loan"), to be 



120 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

applied to the acquisition of certain industrial buildings in 
Baltimore City (the "Industrial Buildings"), for the benefit 
of the Company ; and 

Whereas, the Guarantor operates a book-binding busi- 
ness in which it performs services exclusively for the Com- 
pany and customers of the Company so that its sales and 
resulting profits are a direct result of the business gen- 
erated by, and the financial growth of, the Company; and 

Whereas, the Guarantor is desirous that the City issue 
the Bond and loan the proceeds to the Company as afore- 
said and is willing to enter into this Guarantor Guaranty

the holder of the Bond. 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises 
and in order to induce the City to issue and sell the Bond, 
to enhance the marketability of the Bond and thereby 
achieve lower interest costs and other savings to the Com- 
pany, and as an inducement to the purchase of the Bond 
by all who shall at any time become the holder of the 
Bond, the Guarantor does hereby, subject to the terms 
hereof, covenant and agree with the City and the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond as follows : 

ARTICLE I 

Representations and Warranties of the Guarantor

warrant that : 

(a) The Guarantor (i) is a corporation duly organized 
and existing, in good standing, under the laws of the juris- 
diction of its incorporation and has no subsidiaries, (ii) has 
the corporate power to own its property and to carry on 
its business as now being conducted, and (iii) is duly 
qualified to do business and is in good standing in each 
jurisdiction in which the character of the properties owned 
by it therein or in which the transaction of its business 
makes such qualification necessary. 



ORDINANCES 121 

(b) The Guarantor has full power and authority to 
enter into this Agreement, and to incur and perform the 
obligations provided for herein, all of which have been 
duly authorized by all proper and necessary corporate 
action. No consent or approval of stockholders or of any 
public authority or regulatory body is required as a condi- 
tion to the validity or enforceability of this Agreement. 

(c) This Agreement constitutes the valid and legally 
binding obligation of the Guarantor, and is fully enforce- 
able in accordance with its terms. 

(d) There are no proceedings pending or, so far as the 
officers of the Guarantor know, threatened, before any 
court or administrative agency which, in the opinion of 
the Guarantor, will materially adversely affect the financial 
condition or operations of the Guarantor. 

(e) There is no charter, by-law or preference stock 
provision of the Guarantor and no provision of any exist- 
ing mortgage, indenture, contract or agreement binding on 
the Guarantor or affecting its property, which would con- 
flict with or in any way prevent the execution, delivery, 
or performance of the terms of this Agreement. 

(f) The balance sheet of the Guarantor dated as of 
April 30, 1976, together with statements of profit and loss 
and of surplus for the period then ended, heretofore de- 
livered to the City and the Bank as agent for the holder 
of the Bond, are complete and correct and fairly present 
the financial condition of the Guarantor and results of its 
operations and transactions in its surplus account as of 
the date and for the period referred to and have been 
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting 
principles applied on a consistent basis throughout the 
period involved. There are no liabilities, direct or indirect, 
fixed or contingent, of the Guarantor as of the date of such 
balance sheet which are not reflected therein or in the 
notes thereto. There has been no material adverse change 
in the financial condition or operations of the Guarantor 
since the date of such balance sheet. 

(g) This Agreement is made in furtherance of the pur- 
poses for which the Guarantor and the Company have 
organized and the guarantee by the Guarantor of the pay-

action so taken.

the principal of the Bond then outstanding and any unpaid 
interest thereon, and any sums required to be paid by the 
Company under the terms of the Loan Agreement which 
remain unpaid and, if the default shall consist of a breach

going provisions of his Section 2.7(c), it shall, in addition 
to such payment, pay to the City and/or to the Bank as 
agent for the holder of the Bond such further amount as

collection, including a reasonable compensation to the City 
and/or to the Bank as agent for the holder of the Bond, 
its agents, attorneys and counsel, and (ii) any expenses 
or liabilities incurred hereunder by the Bank as agent for

continue unremedied for thirty (30) days following the 
receipt of such notice, the City and the Bank as agent for

remedies afforded by Section 2.7(c) above; provided, how- 
ever, if such default (other than a default under Sections 
2.1 or 2.7(b) hereof) be such that it cannot be corrected 
within the applicable period, it shall not be a default if 
the Guarantor is taking appropriate corrective action to 
cure such default ; provided that the continued existence of 
such default shall not, in the opinion of the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond, materially adversely affect 
the security for the Bond. 

Section 2.8. This Agreement is entered into by the 
Guarantor for the benefit of the City and the Bank as agent 
for the holder of the Bond and their respective successors 
and assigns under the Loan Agreement and the Ordinance, 
all of whom shall be entitled to enforce performance and 
observance of this Agreement and of the guaranties and 
other provisions herein contained to the same extent as 
if they were parties signatory hereto.

forced as to any one or more breaches either separately

rants that as of the date of execution of this Agreement, 
there exist (s) no lien(s) on any of the assets owned by

holder of the Bond in writing on even date of the execu- 
tion of this Agreement. 



128 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 206 

Section 3.2. So long as the Guarantor remains obligated 
under this Agreement, the Guarantor shall not, with- 
out the prior written consent of the holder of the Bond, 
create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any mortgage, 
pledge, lien or encumbrance of any kind (including the 
charge upon property purchased under conditional sales or 
other title retention agreements) upon, or any security 
interest in, any of its property or assets, whether now 
owned or hereafter acquired, except for such liens of which 
the Guarantor has advised the Bank as agent for the Bond 
in writing in accordance with the terms of Section 3.1 
hereof. 

ARTICLE IV 

Miscellaneous 

Section 4.1. Any notice or notices which may be given 
to the Guarantor respecting any matters pertaining to this 
Agreement or any part thereof shall be deemed to have 
been sufficiently given if it is forwarded in a sealed envel- 
ope by United States registered or certified mail, postage 
prepaid, addressed to the Guarantor at 3801 Southwestern 
Boulevard, Baltimore, Maryland 21229. The Guarantor may 
at any time and from time to time change such address 
by like notice given to the City and the Bank as agent for 
the holder of the Bond at their respective addresses in the 
same manner as provided in Section 13.1 of the Loan 
Agreement. 

Section 4.2. The obligations of the Guarantor hereun- 
der shall arise absolutely and unconditionally when the 
Bond shall have been issued, sold and delivered by the City. 

Section 4.3. No remedy herein conferred upon or re- 
served hereunder to the City and the Bank as agent for the 
holder of the Bond is intended to be exclusive of any other 
available remedy or remedies, but each and every such 
remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to 
every other remedy given under this Agreement or now 
or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute. 
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State 
of Maryland. No delay or omission to exercise any right 
or power accruing upon any default, omission or failure 



ORDINANCES 129 

of performance hereunder shall impair any such right or 
power or shall be construed to be a waiver thereof, but any 
such right and power may be exercised from time to time 
and as often as may be deemed expedient. In order to 
entitle the City and the Bank as agent for the holder of the 
Bond to exercise any remedy reserved to it in this Agree- 
ment, it shall not be necessary to give any notice, other 
than such notice as may be herein expressly required. In 
the event any provision contained in this Agreement should 
be breached by any party and thereafter duly waived by 
the other party so empowered to act, such waiver shall be 
limited to the particular breach so waived and shall not be 
deemed to waive any other breach hereunder. No waiver, 
amendment, release or modification of this Agreement shall 
be established by conduct, custom or course of dealing, but 
solely by an instrument in writing duly executed by the 
parties thereunto duly authorized by this Agreement. 

Section 4.4. This Agreement constitutes the entire agree- 
ment between the parties, and supersedes all prior agree- 
ments and understandings, both written and oral among 
the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and 
may be executed simultaneously in several counterparts, 
each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which 
together shall constitute one and the same instrument. 

Section 4.5. The invalidity or unenforceability of any 
one or more phrases, sentences, clauses or Sections in this 
Agreement contained, shall not affect the validity or en- 
forceability of the remaining portions of this Agreement 
or any part thereof. 

Section 4.6. This Agreement may be amended to the 
same extent and upon the same conditions that the Loan 
Agreement may be amended by a written agreement signed 
by the parties hereto. 

Section 4.7. The terms "acquisition", "Bank", "Bank 
as agent for the holder of the Bond", "Bond", "Company", 
"City", "Guarantor", "holder of the Bond", "Loan Agree- 
ment", and "Ordinance" as used herein, shall have the 
meaning ascribed thereto in Article I of the Loan Agree-

where a provision of this ordinance concerns the same sub- 
ject matter as an existing provision of any zoning, building, 
electrical, plumbing, health, fire or safety ordinance or 
code or regulation, the applicable provisions concerned 
shall be construed so as to give effect to each; provided, 
however, that if such provisions are found to be in irre- 
concilable conflict, the provision which establishes the 
higher standard for the promotion and protection of the 
public health and safety shall prevail. In any case where a 
provision of this ordinance is found to be in conflict with 
an existing provision of any other ordinance or code or 
regulation in force in the City of Baltimore which estab- 
lishes a lower standard for the promotion and protection of 
the public health and safety, the provision of this ordi- 
nance shall prevail, and the other existing provision of 
such other ordinance or code or regulation is hereby re- 
pealed to the extent that it may be found in conflict with

Hill-Chapel Neighborhood Development Program Urban 
Renewal Area, which plan was approved by Ordinance 
No. 40, dated April 26, 1972, to among other things, 44-)-

CLOSING OF CERTAIN ALLEYS; ■££)■ (5) revise cer- 
tain exhibits attached to said plan to indicate the changes

1976; and

by ordinance, without such change or changes first being 
adopted and approved in the same manner as set forth in

the preparation of such change or changes by the Depart- 
ment of Housing and Community Development, the ap-

Whereas, a portion of CHM lies within the ''Coldstream 
Neighborhood Development Program Renewal Area" as

however, it is necessary to include the entire CHM area 
within the boundaries of an approved "Renewal Area" in 
accordance with the provisions of Article 13 of the Balti- 
more City Code (1966 Edition) as amended by Ordinance 
No. 152, approved June 28, 1968; and

Plan; the detailed location of any public improvements pro- 
posed in the Renewal Plan; its conformity to the rules and

approval of the Board of Estimates to acquire for and on 
behalf of the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore the 
property, in whole or in part, on which said demolition was 
to have occurred by purchase, lease, condemnation, gift or 
other legal means for the renovation, rehabilitation and

No. 309 
(Council No. 750) 

An Ordinance to amend the Renewal Plan for the Mount 
Winans Urban Renewal Area, which plan was approved 
by the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore by Ordi- 
nance No. 422, dated April 21, 1969, to, among other 
things, (1) set forth certain conditions for acquisition 



332 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 309 

of properties for rehabilitation by the Department of 
Housing and Community Development; (2) authorize 
the Commissioner of Housing and Community Develop- 
ment to sell certain properties at less than fair value; 
(3) Establish procedures governing the issuance and 
denial of building and demolition permits; (4) create, 
subdivide, combine, or change the land use of certain 
disposition parcels and recommend the creation and/or 
widening of certain alleys in order to promote sound 
residential development; (5) delete semi-public and mixed 
land uses categories; (6) revise certain exhibits attached 
to the renewal plan to indicate the changes provided 
herein; and (7) provide for the effective date hereof. 

Whereas, the Renewal Plan for the Mount Winans 
Urban Renewal Project was approved by the Mayor and 
City Council of Baltimore by Ordinance No. 422, dated 
April 21, 1969, and last amended by Ordinance No. 282, 
dated March 19, 1973 ; and 

Whereas, pursuant to Section 26, Article 13 of the Balti- 
more City Code (1966 Edition), as amended by Ordinance 
No. 152, approved June 28, 1968, no substantial change or 
changes shall be made in any Renewal Plan, after approval 
by ordinance, without such change or changes first being 
adopted and approved in the same manner as set forth in 
said Section 26 for the approval of a Renewal Plan, namely 
the preparation of such change or changes by the Depart- 
ment of Housing and Community Development, the ap- 
proval of such change or changes by the Planning Com- 
mission, and approval and adoption by an Ordinance of 
the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore after a public 
hearing in relation thereto, all in the manner set forth 
in said Section 26 ; and 

Whereas, extensive changes in the Renewal Plan for 
Mount Winans make it infeasible to make line-by-line 
changes, the Department of Housing and Community De- 
velopment has prepared an amended Renewal Plan for 
Mount Winans ; and 

Whereas, said amended Renewal Plan for Mount Winans 
has been approved by the Planning Commission of Balti- 
more City on December 9, 1976, with respect to its con- 
formity as to the Master Plan ; the detailed location of any 



ORDINANCES 333 

public improvements proposed in the amended Renewal 
Plan ; its conformity to the rules and regulations for sub- 
divisions ; and all zoning changes proposed in the amended 
Renewal Plan, and said amended Renewal Plan has been 
approved and recommended to the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore by the Commissioner of the Department of 
Housing and Community Development on January 12, 1977 ; 
now, therefore, 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council 
of Baltimore, That the amended Renewal Plan for Mount 
Winans, identified as "Renewal Plan, Mount Winans (Proj- 
ect MDR-48) . . . revised to include Amendment No. 2, 
dated December 1, 1976" is hereby approved, and the Clerk 
of the City Council is hereby directed to file a copy of 
said amended Renewal Plan with the Department of Legis- 
lative Reference as a permanent public record and to 
make the same available for public inspection and informa- 
tion. 

Sec. 2. And be it further ordained, That in addition to 
those properties authorized to be acquired by Ordinance 
422, dated April 21, 1969 and by Ordinance 282, dated 
March 19, 1973, it may be necessary to acquire by purchase 
or condemnation the fee simple interest, or any lesser inter- 
est, in and to certain properties, together with all rights, 
title, interest, and estate that the owner or owners of 
said property interests may have in all streets, alleys, ways 
or lanes, public or private, abutting said properties, in 
order to carry out rehabilitation by the Department of 
Housing and Community Development. These properties 
will be acquired because: 

(a) it is necessary to make residential structures avail- 
able for use for low- and moderate-income families; and 

(b) rehabilitation on a structure-by-structure basis is 
infeasible, and assemblage of a group of properties is re- 
quired to carry out the objectives set forth in this Plan ; or 

(c) rehabilitation of individual, scattered properties is 
necessary in order to remove blighting influences from 
otherwise sound residential blocks.

Sec. 5. And be it further ordained, That all applications 
for new construction, substantial renovation, EXTERIOR

Development shall authorize the issuance of the necessary

14A. 

LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS 

The Mayor and City Council find that: 

(1) An emergency has been created by a substantial 
increase in the number and in the seriousness of crimes 



346 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 316 

committed by minors against persons and property within 
the City, and this has created a menace to the preserva- 
tion of public peace, safety, health, morals and welfare; 

(2) The increase in juvenile delinquency has been 
caused in part by the large number of minors who are per- 
mitted to remain in public places and in certain establish- 
ments during night hours without adult supervision AND 
DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS AT TIMES WHEN, BY 
LAW, THEY ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND SCHOOL. 

(3) Education is the foundation of success and a pro- 
ductive life. The City of Baltimore provides the educational 
system and its staff but the cooperation of students and 
their parents determines the productivity of the educa- 
tional system. Late evening activity by certain of our 
youth prevents them from concentrating in class or, even 
worse, causes their absence from class. This, together with 
truancy, has risen alarmingly in recent years and youth is 
thus deprived of a necessary basic education. The rate of 
absenteeism has risen alarmingly in recent years while 
the achievement rate has rapidly decreased. The end result 
is an increase in failures and dropouts, frustration, mal- 
content [ment J, anti-social conduct which brings the youth 
inte wt& Juvcnilo Court and for many a future without 
promise. 

(4) The problem of juvenile delinquency can be re- 
duced by regulating the hours during which minors may 
remain in public places and in certain establishments 
without adult supervision, and by imposing certain duties 
and responsibilities upon the parents or other adult per- 
sons who have care and custody of minors.

the Comptroller, or such person or persons and in such 
manner as the Board of Estimates, in the exercise of power 
vested in it by Article V, Section 5 of the Baltimore City 
Charter, may hereafter from time to time designate, is or 
are unable to agree with the owner or owners on the pur- 
chase price for said properties or portions thereof, it or 
they shall forthwith notify the City Solicitor of Baltimore 
City, who shall thereupon institute in the name of the 
Mayor and City Council of Baltimore the necessary legal 
proceedings to acquire by condemnation the fee simple 
interest or any lesser interest in and to said properties or 
portions thereof.

new construction (including parking lots), exterior reha- 
bilitation, or change in use on any property not to be ac- 
quired under the provisions of this plan shall be submitted

munity Development shall authorize the issuance of the 
necessary permit. If the Commissioner finds that the 
proposal is inconsistent with the objectives of the urban 
renewal plan and therefore denies the issuance of the per- 
mit, within 90 days of such denial, he shall seek approval 
of the Board of Estimates to acquire for and on behalf of 
the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore the property, in 
whole or in part, on which said demolition was to have 
occurred by purchase, lease, condemnation, gift or other 
legal means for the renovation, rehabilitation and disposi- 
tion thereof. In the event that the Board of Estimates does 
not authorize the acquisition, the Commissioner shall 
without delay, issue the demolition permit.

where a provision of this ordinance concerns the same sub- 
ject matter as an existing provision of any zoning, build- 
ing, electrical, plumbing, health, fire or safety ordinance or 
code or regulation, the applicable provisions concerned shall 
be construed so as to give effect to each; provided, how-
